Review of Klover Star 14 and Star 18

Star18

Gareth Jones one year ago

After weeks of research, hours of shocked disbelief as quotes came in we took the plunge into pellet boiler land. We choose the klover Star18,supplied and fitted by Bywhe.Their price was highly competitive, they basically fitted an entire heating and hot water system for the price others wanted for the boiler fitted and they were a pleasure to work with. The Star 18 looks great and has pride of place in our open plan living area. The hot air system is very effective and warms the room in matter of minutes. The radiators get toasty hot and keep the building warm and comfortable.And now for the how long is a piece string conversation. We use approximately 13kg of pellet a day. That''s having the boiler on 6 hours a day and keeping the thermostat at 18c. This is just for heating no hot water. The crux of the matter is that it''s a boiler. It works like any other boiler. It''s all automatic. Set your times and your good to go. The only difference is you have to pour pellets in the back, empty and clean the fire box everyweek or two. I thoroughly recommend the Klover Star 18 and Bywhe. If your looking for a different way to heat your house and don''t mind a little lifting and cleaning this is the way forward.Plus the lovely government give you money for doing it (RHI payment). It''s a no brainer.
